ATTORNEYS
Our area’s most respected attorneys, as
nominated by their peers in the legal community.
This feature reflects the results of a survey conducted by Arlington Magazine in which area
attorneys were asked to nominate their peers in 21 practice areas. Participants were allowed
to recommend attorneys in their own firms, provided they also recommended an equal
number of attorneys (or more) in other firms. The list is limited to attorneys who are located
in Arlington County, Fairfax County, the City of Falls Church and the City of Alexandria.
Arlington Magazine administered the survey, but was not involved in the selection process.
